    Default Bought civic 2005. Need advice

    Hi Guys
    I have bought this 96k driven Civic 2005 VTi Pros.

    The car is stable to drive yet has RPM droppage issues in idle for which i am sending it for a Check up Tomorrow.

    Can you guys tell me what other specific lookouts and focus points are there in this specific model? Or what to do first when getting a used car

    Pics attached (myself saying MashaAllah if someone else doesnt :-) )

    Venomdesire, you hit the bullseye. That's exactly what everyone says. The solution they say is pour in 1 liter of Zic coolant and rest water.

    Yes. Adding coolant in a very diluted quantity might help decrease rusting process but if u drain the radiator and put in full coolant (or a high proportion), soon youll have either radiator leaks or rust particles in the mix that will cause further problems.

    AND the worst effect will be on the waterbody blades. They would be rusted...the coolant would treat/remove rust and blades would deteriorate/chip hence affecting performance and cause heating due to improper fluid flow

    you are absolutely right. it happened with me. bought same model last year. and it was on water in radiator. changed it to zic coolant and thats it. water body leakage started. got it changed and radiator serviced and then again put coolant in it and no issue after that

    A cleaning its done before shifting to coolant. The leakage you get after directly pouring coolant will be tackled after the acidic flush. And then you can safely put coolant.

    We cannot pour coolent directly either u have to dillute it with water or u ill have to buy pre-dilluted.

    Best one available here is toyota genuine coolant.

    I even dont no what coolant is in my car. Its greenish in color nd havent dropped a bit in year. Even i had driven continusly fr 9 hours with 5 people and a lot of luggage
